Cucumber watermelon salad

Cucumber watermelon salad

Try planting watermelon and cucumbers in your garden or community garden - it's a great way for kids to learn about food. You can also start a small herb garden in your kitchen, so your family can enjoy fresh herbs. Kids can paint small terra cotta pots and choose their favourite herbs to plant.


  • ½ seedless watermelon, rind removed, flesh cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks
  • 1 English cucumber, quartered lengthwise, and cut into ¼-inch ) 0.5 cm) slices
  • 1 Tbsp canola or extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh basil
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese


In a large bowl, combine watermelon and cucumber. Drizzle with oil. Add basil and cheese; gently toss to combine.
